Other than the "SAFTEY FACTOR"
There are other benefits to installing a basement egress window:
Allows for an abundance of natural light and ventilation.
The natural light beautifies the basement and adds to the ambiance of the area. Many basement egress window wells also include tiers inside them to allow planters to be filled with plants. This also adds to the beauty of the basement.
Improve your interior design of your basement rooms.
Homeowners remodeling a home and builders building a new home would like to have a larger living space. By meeting the building codes for basement egress a finished basement can nearly double the living area. In fact, basement living space is the most affordable living area to build in a home.
Increase your home's value.
If you are making home improvements to your basement you are now required to install an escape egress window, it's the law. When looking to purchase an egress window well, make sure it meets the International Residential Code (IRC) 2000.
